DID YOU KNOW? READY FOR THE WORLD

DID YOU KNOW .....
That the popping 1985 single, Oh, Sheila,  was neither by Prince nor about his frequent collaborator Sheila E., although it reportedly fooled at least one of those people:  The group that made this song famous is Ready For The World.  Legend had it that when "Oh Sheila," which bears a strong resemblance to the 1999 track "Lady Cab Driver," came on the radio, Sheila asked Prince when he wrote it. ("I didn't," he replied.) The song's manic energy, feverish bass line and focus on a long-gone lover helped drive it to the top of the Hot 100, although its chart-topping status hasn't prevented listeners from mistaking it for a Prince track to this day.

The group will be joining Morris Day And The time, TROOP, and others on August 12, 2017 at the Morocco Shrine Grounds in Jacksonville at 6pm.  Tickets available at www.throwbackconcert.eventbrite.com.
